Achieving professional certification means that your business meets a standard of quality that is recognized around the world. But it can be a challenge to navigate the process.
The NS Department of Economic and Rural Development and the World Trade Centre Atlantic Canada are hosting a
series of five half-day seminars on understanding the certification process necessary for key markets and industries. We will cover process standards, quality management, and the benefits of becoming certified in your field.
In each of the five seminars, a featured guest speaker will offer an informative presentation and walk participants through a case study of a local company's experience and success in becoming certified. A Q&A session will conclude each seminar.
